    You don't mention if your enlarger column is mounted on the base board or not, but if it is, maybe you could build a sturdy shelf about six to eight inches higher than the base board and mount the enlarger column to that? This would increase your exposure times.

    But you're already thinking about using a different enlarger, right?

    You sound a bit like a whining kid in front of a candy store.

    I am with firecracker (what the hell is your real name?) on this one.

    Suck it up and change the aperture or just buy an new enlarger that will work for your negs.

    This is a bit ridiculous.

    One more thought: Enlarger lamps get darker as they age. If you use your enlarger with the same lamp long enough, maybe you may be able to stick to F8 with twice as much time as you like to get the kind of result you want.

    At first I thought: "You sound a bit like a whining kid in front of a candy store." was a bit harsh despite the smiley face emoticon, but now it seems rather appropriate. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

    He seemed to have other choices (enlargers), which is a good thing.
